    Hello to all! It's nice to have found such a friendly forum. My name is Greg and I am a full-time Father of two beautiful daughters and I love being outside in the gardens. I became interested in organic gardening after a life changing event :eek: and came to an understanding that I could not be any healthier than what I was putting in my body :idea: (I have never been to Graceland) I grew up in PA, lived in NY, TX and CA before finally settling down and getting married at the young age of 40. I am gearing up to start an organic gardening store (hopefully soon!) I work for a non-profit, focused on sustainable agriculture and love to write... when I get the chance.

    Hello Greg - good to have you here at GardenStew. I'm an organic gardener from Scotland in the UK. Our weather can make any type of gardening rather challenging but I love it anyway. I look forward to getting to know you.

    Welcome to the Stew! You'll find lots of friendly gardeners here, lots of inspiration for your writing, and, if possible, we'd love to see your garden!
    We are in Texas on a small farm with hens, herbs, vegetables and flowers, and loving every minute of it!
